"Elite" was originally written in 1984 by
Ian Bell and David Braben for the BBC Microcomputer.

On 10th Feb 2003, David Braben re-asserted his desire
for versions of 'Elite - The New Kind', and derivatives, which
means elite:javanicus to be removed from the internet.

I have removed all elite:javanicus sources
and binaries out of respect for
David Braben,
Ian Bell and Christian Pinder.

Elite in 100% pure Java* not certified,
and was being worked upon by  
Jeremy Rayner
Manfred Riem
Jan Bruun Andersen

This project would not have been possible without the
awe-inspiring work of Christian Pinder
who reverse engineered the original BBC Disk Elite into C
and is now working on the fantastic Dark Kind game instead.
